upsd.users - Administrative user definitions for NUT upsd
Administrative commands such as setting variables and the instant
commands are powerful, and access to them needs to be restricted. This
file defines who may access them, and what is available.
Each user gets its own section. The fields in that section set the
parameters associated with that user’s privileges. The section begins
with the name of the user in brackets, and continues until the next
user name in brackets or EOF.
Here are some examples to get you started:
password = mypass
actions = set
instcmds = all
password = duh
instcmds = test.panel.start
password = blah
password = abcd
Set the password for this user.
Allow the user to do certain things with upsd. Valid actions
SET ‐ change the value of certain variables in the UPS
FSD ‐ set the forced shutdown flag in the UPS. This is
equivalent to an "on battery + low battery" situation for the
purposes of monitoring.
The list of actions is expected to grow in the future.
Let a user initiate specific instant commands. Use "ALL" to
grant all commands automatically. For the full list of what
your UPS supports, use "upscmd -l".
The cmdvartab file supplied with the distribution contains a
list of most of the known command names.
upsmon Add the necessary actions for a upsmon process to work. This
is either set to "master" or "slave".
Do not attempt to assign actions to upsmon by hand, as you may
miss something important. This method of designating a "upsmon
user" was created so internal capabilities could be changed
later on without breaking existing installations.
UPGRADING FROM OLDER VERSIONS
The allowfrom mechanism that existed in versions before nut-2.4.0 has
been replaced by tcp-wrappers. Further details are described in
